Another summer brings another charter season full of champagne, caviar, and tropic thunder. Captain Lee Rosbach, Kate Chastain (chief stew), Amy Johnson (second stew), and Eddie Lucas (bosun) return from last season, along with new crew members Don Abenante (second engineer/deckhand), Connie Arias (deckhand), Raquel “Rocky” Dakota (third stew), Emile Kotze (deckhand) and Leon Walker (chef) to make life aboard a 11 million dollar private, luxury yacht, an unforgettable experience for their guests. The crew quickly learns they must check their egos at the dock in order to provide first-class service to their wealthy and uncompromising charter guests. From illicit affairs, to crew member firings, and technical failures on the yacht, the drama on the high seas becomes too much for some of them to handle. As tensions reach a boiling point between Kate and new chef Leon, Captain Lee calls on chef Ben Robinson for help.
